The apartment is in a lovely spot, with a pleasant short walk into Swanage. All in all we enjoyed our stay, although for us the double bed was uncomfortable, we both had broken sleep. Nice touch leaving milk, wine and jam in the fridge. Two parking spaces is a big bonus, and the area is very quiet and peaceful.

The property was in a great location, close enough to walk to town but away from the crowds. It was very clean with the facilities you need for a holiday home. There were some minor maintenance issues but none that negatively impacted our stay.

We had a lovely stay in Swanage with our black lab. The house was lovely and in a fabulous location right near the town and about a minute's walk from the South West Coast path. We will definitely be back again!

This property is situated in a good location - close to Peveril Point and in walking distance to Swanage town centre. It is very well equipped, with pretty much anything you would need being available. There are nice views of the sea from the lounge and kitchen. Wed stay here again.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
